Ash Grove Nursing Evac
ASH GROVE, Mo. -

Residents at an Ash Grove nursing facility got a rude late-night awakening. The Ash Grove Health Care Facility on Medical Drive was evacuated Tuesday night after employees reported smoke in the dining area.

The people inside were forced outside, but were allowed back in a short time later.
Employees at the facility say the cause could be electrical but fire officials are still working to pin down the source of the smoke.
